HIV/AIDS Information and Resources

Here are some sources of information that may be helpful to those living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
 
New York State Policies And Guidelines
HIV Treatment Works (HTW) Campaign 
CDC Campaign banner of Malina, a person living with HIV since 2010 from Bronx, New York: HIV Treatment Works. Get in Care. Stay in Care. Live Well. Hear her story at cdc.gov/HIVTreatmentWorks. A photo shows Malina hugging her son.
VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth supports the HIV Treatment Works (HTW) Campaign sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
 
The HTW campaign features people who are living with HIV talking about how sticking with care and treatment helps them stay healthy, protect other, and live longer, healthier lives.

HIV Prevention and PrEP
HIV negative people who take a pill called PrEP can reduce their risk of getting HIV. If you worry about getting or transmitting HIV, talk to your doctor about PrEP and other ways to prevent HIV and STDs. You can also learn more at www.prepforsex.org.

Ending the Epidemic in New York State
VNSNY CHOICE SelectHealth supports Ending the Epidemic (ETE), a three-point plan to move New York State closer to the end of the AIDS epidemic. The plan:  

  1. Identifies people with HIV who remain undiagnosed and links them to health care.
  2. Links people diagnosed with HIV to health care and retains them to maximize virus suppression, so they can remain healthy and avoid further transmission.
  3. Facilitates access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for high-risk people, to help them remain HIV negative.

Additional information and the full Ending the Epidemic Blueprint can be found here

To view the Ending the Epidemic Dashboard and track the progress toward ending the AIDS epidemic in New York State, please visit the ETE website
